Mrs. Jasmine from Danville CA is requesting educational kits & games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Toys & Manipulatives to Support Communication

Help me give my students manipulatives to enhance their communication! Manipulatives such as kinetic sand, toy cars, and toy objects provide opportunities to practice vocabulary, basic concepts, and speech sounds.

My Project

We all deserve a voice and my preschool students are working on finding theirs. This project will support my preschool students in developing their communication skills through play. Your donation to this project will supplement the materials available to my students during their speech and language therapy services. The items in this project will provide opportunities to practice language concepts and speech sounds in a natural play-based manner.

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student engagement, but you will also help to increase my student's communication skills.
